Sedation Dentistry for IDD Patients
At Medico M.D. we understand that special needs and IDD patients need special attention. Before an appointment is scheduled at one of our clinics, Medico M.D. will obtain and review the medical history. We may consult physicians, family members, caregivers, and relevant parties to assemble an accurate medical history and assess the best options for the visit.
We are happy to be able to offer a solution to some common worries of special needs and IDD patients. Our clinics provide various sedation dentistry options that offer comfort, less anxiety and safer visits.
We are able to offer different types of sedation for your individual needs. For some, nitrous oxide gas (laughing gas) is all our patient needs to offer some help relaxing during a procedure. For others, mild sedation to complete sedation may be a safer alternative.
Complete Sedation on-site with our Medical Anesthesiologist Team
In many cases complete sedation is the better option. As part of our commitment to our special needs and IDD patients, we provide complete sedation in our clinics with our Medical Anesthesiologist Team on-site.
We pride ourselves in understanding the unique needs of patients and the ability to accomodate these needs.
